To All the Boys‘ Israel Broussard Apologizes for Insensitive Tweets
Here’s a note to all celebrities — DELETE YOUR OLD TWEETS!!!! To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Israel Broussard was forced to apologize after old, insensitive notes recently resurfaced on Twitter.
Back in 2016, the 24-year-old actor, who plays Josh in the iconic Netflix movie, posted some incredibly inconsiderate messages about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the general political climate in the United States.

One tweet reads, “Hashtags don’t f*cking matter. But all lives do. Black lives matter. White lives matter. Police lives matter.”
Another tweet, which has since been deleted, says, “Black Lives Matter has one goal. Division.”
He also allegedly liked a bunch of similar tweets.
Look at this! These are some of Israel Broussard's most recent likes. It really sucks that this man got to star in the rare film that had an Asian-American woman as the romantic lead #AllTheBoysIveLovedBefore pic.twitter.com/OE2tcIfmhI

Israel received tons of criticism as a result and issued an apology on the same social media platform.
“I am deeply sorry for my inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media,” the statement reads. “I take full responsibility for my actions and I sincerely apologize. This has been a pivotal life lesson for me. I am dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself. Much love — Israel”

Here’s a thought — DON’T SAY STUPID THINGS ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND YOU WON’T HAVE TO APOLOGIZE LATER.
